  • Vladimir Putin’s imprisoned political opponent says all his requests have been denied.

Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny said he had fun in prison making outlandish demands of his penal colony guards.

In a series of tweets on Friday, Navalny shared several requests he made to the prison administration, including the request for tobacco and a bottle of moonshine, nunchucks and a good staffa megaphone to give to the “psycho in the cell across the hall”, A kimonoand one kangaroo.

He also asked to know the prison service dog names and asked for a massage chair for their squad leader’s “stress relief”.

Navalny, who is serving an 11.5-year sentence in a penal colony in Russia, said all of his requests have been denied so far.

“In response to your request to give the psychopath in the cell opposite yours a bullhorn so he can shout even louder, we inform you that the bullhorn cannot be issued to a convict in SHIZO,” a denial readaccording to Navalny.

Another said, according to Navalny: “In response to your request for the attribution of the 10th dan in karate to your fellow prisoner who killed a man with his bare hands, we inform you that the question of the attribution of qualification grades in martial arts is not dealt with by the administration of the penal institution.”

As for knowing the names of assistance dogs, Navalny says that the penal colony staff told him that if he learned their names, he could befriend them and “use it to get away”.

As for his kangaroo request, Navalny said officials told him double-crested marsupials are “prohibited by SHIZO”.

“I just can’t let this pass. According to house rules, a convict is allowed to keep an animal with the permission of the administration,” Navalny said in a tweet. “I will continue to fight for my inalienable right to have a kangaroo.”

Navalny, a fierce critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin, has been jailed in Russia since early 2021 on charges of fraud, which rights groups say is politically motivated.
